Additional New Data from Satraplatin SPARC Phase 3 Investigational,Trial Presented at ASCO Annual Meeting

Preliminary data from an ongoing Phase 2 trial evaluating satraplatin plus Taxol(R) (paclitaxel) in the first-line treatment of patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer were also published in the ASCO educational book (Shipley, D. et al. Phase II trial of satraplatin and paclitaxel in the first-line treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer). Data from 24 patients were available for analysis; a total of approximately 40 patients are expected to be enrolled in the study. This preliminary analysis showed that satraplatin plus Taxol appears to have activity in this treatment setting. In an effort to reduce myelosuppression in the study, the satraplatin dose has been lowered to 70 mg/m2 from 80 mg/m2. The study continues to enroll and follow patients.

About Satraplatin

Satraplatin, an investigational drug, is a member of the platinum family of compounds. Platinum-based drugs are a critical part of modern chemotherapy treatments and are used to treat a wide variety of cancers. All platinum drugs currently on the market require intravenous administration. Satraplatin is an oral compound that clinical trial patients are able to take at home. Satraplatin is not currently approved by the FDA in the United States, by the EMEA in the European Union or any other regulatory authority and no conclusions can or should be drawn regarding its safety and efficacy.

A Phase 3 registrational trial, called SPARC, is evaluating satraplatin plus prednisone versus placebo plus prednisone in 950 patients with hormone- refractory prostate cancer whose prior chemotherapy has failed. Data from the trial on progression-free survival and on safety have been presented at recent medical conferences.

GPC Biotech has a co-development and license agreement with Pharmion GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pharmion Corporation, under which Pharmion has been granted exclusive commercialization rights to satraplatin for Europe and certain other territories.
